IoT and Industry 4.0

Whatever you are planning, we make sure it works properly.

The Internet of Things is no longer just an abstract research topic but already actively incorporated into industrial practice.

So you want high machine and system availability at the lowest possible maintenance costs? Or maybe you want to expand your portfolio with future-oriented services? In this case, Solve is the right partner for you. We provide the experience and expert knowledge in the area of IoT as well as end customer and process know-how. This enables us to work with you to develop a solution that will increase productivity, simplify operating processes and create new business models.

Modern IoT solutions record data in buildings, devices or machines and monitor the status of their systems. This allows you to detect emerging malfunctions at an early phase and perform (remote) maintenance with precision. In addition, you will receive real-time information on how your products are performing in operation. The big advantage for you is that service visits can be scheduled in a targeted manner, systems can be maintained in operation for longer and consequential damage can be avoided. This will save your company a lot of time and money.

However, just as important as a technically sophisticated solution is one that your customers find acceptable. Consequently, we rely on close cooperation with the end users right from the start in order to reach an optimal result.

IOT hardware

Make or buy? This is the key question that arises with IoT hardware. As a service provider for electronics and software development, we also know the physical side of IoT solutions and, together with our partner network, will find the ideal solution for your application.

Main focus

  • Interfaces to existing data sources
  • Data loggers
  • Gateways (standard products and special solutions)
  • Calibration systems for production and maintenance

Data transfer

The right choice of data transmission is crucial for the proper functioning of the complete system and at the same time marks the starting point of your IoT solution. With our wide experience from the application of different gateways, we will find the right solution for your application. And if the right product should still not be available, we will support you in designing a customised solution.

Main focus

  • Third-party connectivity platforms
  • Data pre-processing
  • Data pre-processing
  • Data encryption and secure connections

Data processing

As the old saying goes, “Many roads lead to Rome”, and there is often more than one way to get your project to its final destination. It is exactly the same situation with your data. With countless ways to process your data efficiently and securely, our experts use their expertise to help you identify the most efficient and cost-effective way.

Main focus

  • Edge computing
  • Cloud computing

Data management / data storage

Data management is the foundation for the operation of your IoT solution and ensures that the information is available in a secure environment – at the right time and in the right place.

Just as your data is different, so are the ways in which it can be stored. With our expertise, we will find the best way for your use case. Whether you choose a cloud solution or hosting on your company’s own IT infrastructure, data authority is always in your control.

Main focus

  • Daatabase solutions
  • Cloud computing (Microsoft Azure)


The real value of data only becomes evident when it is prepared and displayed in a form that is suitable for users. With the expertise we have acquired from numerous projects, we will develop the best form of data visualisation for you and your users.

Main focus

  • Web-based or client-based software solutions
  • Visualisation and analysis tools
  • Generating reports and documentation
  • Integration of third-party components

Data analysis

Data analysis is not magic; it is solid mathematics and statistics, paired with the necessary basic technical understanding. For this reason, we work closely in this sector with the data analysis professionals of the Institute for Computational Engineering ICE at the University of Applied Sciences OST. In addition, our software developers provide the necessary technical and mathematical background to integrate the algorithms determined into a productive software platform.

Main focus

  • Requirement specification and conception
  • Numerical modelling and simulation
  • Data analysis and statistics
  • Optimisation
